Watermelon is the perfect summer refreshment but even more so after a workout. Watermelon contains electrolytes and being mostly water it's great for hydration. Additionally it's a source of vitamins A, B6, C and potassium as well as L-citruline which increases the rate of lactic acid removal from your muscles. This means not only will you feel refreshed and hydrated, but your muscles will recover faster after your gym session.
Kick off your summer chill out party with a jug of watermelon sangria. You can pick out the best the best ripe melon by making sure the "tail" is dry and the fruit has a creamy yellow spot on one side. This indicates that the watermelon was not picked too early and had enough time to ripen.
